Speaker: Jennifer Doudna, Professor and HHMI Investigator, UC Berkeley.
Hosts: Professor Franca Fraternali and Professor Michael Malim
Abstract: Gene editing with CRISPR technology is transforming biology. Understanding the underlying chemical mechanisms of RNA-guided DNA and RNA cleavage provides a foundation for both conceptual advances and technology development. Professor Doudna will discuss how bacterial CRISPR adaptive immune systems inspire creation of powerful genome engineering tools, enabling advances in both fundamental biology and applications in medicine. Professor Doudna will also discuss the ethical challenges of some of these applications.
